Black Sheep

Lyrics and music: Rob Orlando
Tunes: Riding on a Load of Hay (traditional)

It’s hard to be yourself when the whole society doesn’t judge you for who you are, but for what you are not. But the Free Will gives strength to your actions therefore you are the only responsible for your destiny. Semplify. Be Content.

I woke up in the middle of the night
hundreds of thoughts closed inside my mind
the job, the bills, the rent
my purse without a cent
Am I looking for a life I cannot find

at the bar the coffee is always cold
i read the news, the world is upside down
another bloody war
greedy banks want more
politicians wear the suit of the clowns

Live now, rebel now
Awake from the every day sleep
Live now, rebel now
Be proud to be a black sheep

in the streets people run in and out
enslaved and brainwashed in a useless state of mind
choked in their ties
no lifesigns in their eyes
they’ve lost the spark that marks out humankind

the boozer at the corner has lost his job
he was a foreman in the textile factory
Fired without pity
Dumped from society
System’s slaves cannot have a victory

Live now, rebel now
Awake from the every day sleep
Live now, rebel now
Be proud to be a black sheep

Live now!
Sail away from your safe dock
Rebel now!
Don’t be a part of the flock
Live now!
Sail away from your safe dock

It is true, I live on the edge of a knife
But I am free and I can shout it out loud
my heart still hold strong
let me play one more song
No remorses, of my life I can be proud

Dark clouds are covering the sky
but my time has never been so bright
I just need a glass of wine
some friends, a song, a rhyme
enough reasons to live and feel alive

Live now, rebel now
Awake from the every day sleep
Live now, rebel now
Be proud to be a black sheep
